Owner Richardson Attends Game vs Denver

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, who is awaiting a heart transplant, attended Sunday’s game between his team and the Broncos. The 72-year-old owner was told this week during a hospital stay related to the recent installation of a pacemaker that he needs a transplant. He was placed on a donor waiting list.

In spite of his health, he was in a front row seat Sunday in his open-air suite at Bank of America Stadium. He appeared to be covered in a black and blue Panthers blanket. Richardson, who missed Monday night’s 38-23 win over division rival Tampa Bay, is the first former NFL player since George Halas to own a team. He and his two sons worked for years to get an NFL expansion team, a prospect at one time thought impossible for Charlotte.
